The fiscal year (FY) 2018 Full Time Support (FTS) Aviation Department Head Retention Bonus (ADHRB) has been released. The FY 2018 program mirrors the previous FTS ADHRB program. The program continues the bonus system of previous years that is tied directly to force structure and targets initial eligible aviators. Aviators who are approaching their first opportunity to leave FTS aviation are offered a bonus of $5,000 per year to $28,000 per year for a three-year contract to remain through 15 years of commissioned service. For details on eligibility and application procedures, visit the FTS aviation officer website.
